Danny Guthrie has talked to nufcTV today, and has said he hopes he can score some goals for Newcastle this coming season.
Danny Guthrie – scored within 8 minutes of debut for Newcastle
The 21-year-old found the back of the net for Newcastle at Hartlepool after just 8 minutes of coming on last Saturday, and that was after he had already set up Damien Duff for his second goal.
Guthrie told nufcTV today that he is hoping to add to his goals tally when the new season kicks off in just over three weeks time.
“Playing for Bolton last season there wasn’t really much opportunity to get forward because we were often on the back foot or holding on,”
“But in this team, where we get the ball down and play, there will hopefully be a lot more opportunity to get forward and get some goals.”
“It was great to get a goal on my debut and hopefully I’ll add to that next season.”
Guthrie has already made a big impact with Newcastle fans, and it doesn’t hurt that Kevin has already compared him with former Newcastle stars Paul Bracewell and Rob Lee.
“It was nice to hear being compared to players such as that.”
“But now I’ve got to get my head down and work hard and hopefully repay the gaffer’s faith in bringing me here,”
“I’m feeling sharp and I’m really looking forward to the next game at Doncaster on Saturday.”
This lad could turn out to be the signing of the summer for Newcastle, as he seems to have everything it takes to star in a Kevin Keegan side.
Certainly his attitude is just first class.
We’ll be able to take another look at the youngster on Saturday afternoon at Doncaster – but we’ve definitely liked what we’ve seen so far, that’s for sure.
